Doesn’t look like Minnesota in December with the green grass. We have had a little snow and a lot of rain and above freezing weather. The tree still looks nice. I used my widest wide angle lens to get the shot.
Usually Rice park lights get turned on after thanksgiving but not this year. They lit it all up last weekend and I missed it. I am just guessing that the tree lighting and fireworks looked just like they did when I took this photo in 2014. The photos I have taken in Rice Park over the years are my most stolen photographs.
A giant nutcracker and some angels used to be part of the holiday decorations in rice park. They are not there this year. Where did they go?
Yes I took this in 2014 but it looks the same this year and that is OK.
Just a different angle. The Union Depot is behind me and the tree is in front of me. Another shot from last weeks tree lighting.
At 4th and Sibley in downtown St. Paul on the steps of the Union Depot.
